There are two options for obtaining an M.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering (Communications): a degree with a Thesis, or a degree with a Comprehensive Examination. The Thesis track consists of (24) credit hours of coursework and a thesis with the equivalent of nine credit hours. The Comprehensive Examination track consists of (33) credit hours of coursework and the requirement of passing a comprehensive examination.
The aim of this program is to provide students the knowledge and skills needed for problem solving in a wide range of engineering applications related in manufacturing as well as in service sectors. It includes 160 credit hours program which covers the following aspects:
The Master of Industrial Engineering/ Design and Manufacturing (Thesis and Non-Thesis
Track) is the first master's program in Manufacturing engineering licensed by
the Jordanian government and activated at the University of Jordan.
accepted the first collection of students in September 1988. Since then the
program has been successful and growth in all aspects: more graduates, more
research, and more university theses, where it has contributed to a distinct
academic reputation for the program.
The program is associated to qualifying
students with engineering B.Sc. mainly in the industrial and mechanical and
other specializations in engineering in a more advanced perspective of
manufacturing, materials, design, automation and control. This program also
acquaints the students with the economical aspect of manufacturing. The recent
trends in materials and manufacturing is a part of this course in addition to
instructing students in proper conduction of the scientific research. The
program also illustrates manufacturing systems management perspectives such as
planning and logistics of design and manufacturing, product design and quality,
advanced manufacturing processes and remote manufacturing, the program provides
a technical-based alternative to traditional engineering master programs.
The program aims to introduce students to
the basic supports of the managerial roles of manufacturing engineers and
designers, analysis of the various functions of technological and engineering organizations,
manufacturing techniques, design, materials engineering, and manufacturing and
engineering logistics systems that contribute to the formulation and execution of
decisions in manufacturing engineering and design, as well as automation,
product design and computer aided design and manufacturing in addition to the
economic aspects of manufacturing.
The program consists of 33 credit hours. The
core courses provide a more comprehensive foundation in traditional and
nontraditional manufacturing engineering, engineering design, and computer
aided engineering in manufacturing and design, engineering materials systems,
decision making and logistics management.
Furthermore, for thesis track, students
select a research advisor and area for specialization to conduct a research thesis.
The thesis may involve either theoretical or experimental research investigations,
or both. The thesis can be of a limited scope but should involve a significant
degree of originality. The thesis enables the graduate student to identify,
formulate, and solve real-life manufacturing and design engineering problems.
The graduates of the program will have
knowledge and professionalism that are comparable to the graduates of the top
universities in the world, therefore, the industrial engineering department
will strive to include professional instructors with excellent research that
will assist the students in acquiring the required knowledge and have their
proper place in the society.
The Master of Science Degree in Maintenance
Engineering and Quality Management is the 3rd Master program conducted by the
industrial engineering at the University of Jordan. Government of Jordan in
2015 licenses it. We enrolled our first Gradates students in September 2017.
Since then we have grown in all aspects: more students, more courses for
maintaining our academic reputation.
We are proud of our growing reputation as a provider
of quality higher education in the Kingdom of Jordan and in the region. The
high quality of education of the Master of Science Degree in Maintenance
Engineering and Quality Management is accredit by the local Accreditation and
Quality Assurance Centre and by the national accreditation and quality
assurance commission for higher education intuitions continue to recognize the
quality of our teaching and learning.
The field of Maintenance Engineering with a focus on
Quality Management bridges the gap between maintenance engineering practices
and perfection. The program involves many tools and techniques oriented to
maintenance engineering and quality management that enable engineers to
function more effectively in the business environment. The program provides a technical-based
alternative to traditional engineering master programs.
The program provides understanding of managerial
roles of maintenance engineers, analysis of the diverse functions of
technological and maintenance systems, and understanding modern maintenance
techniques and methods as they apply to formulating and executing maintenance
and quality decisions.
The program consists of 30 credits in including
15 credits of core courses.
6 credits of elective courses.
9 credits of thesis research.
The core courses provide a more comprehensive
foundation in engineering management principles (Scientific Research
Methodology, Applied Engineering Statistics, Quality Control and Reliability,
Maintenance Management and Organization, and Continuous Improvement methodologies).
Furthermore, in the thesis dissertation students select a research advisor and
area for specialization. The thesis may involve either theoretical or
experimental investigations, or both. It can be of a limited scope but should
involve a significant degree of originality. The thesis enables the graduate
student to Identify, formalize, and solve real-life maintenance and quality
To provide a high quality
Master of Science (M.Sc.) Degree in Maintenance Engineering and Quality
Management that will be locally, regionally, and internationally recognized.
To provide an outstanding Master of Science (M.Sc.)
Degree in Maintenance Engineering and Quality Management educational and
research opportunities for regional , national and international students ,
while maintaining our social commitment to the development of new knowledge
through the integration of research, and practice.
The program has the following aims
Ø To ensure that graduates of
the program are technically competent and aware of their technical and ethical
Ø To graduate qualified
engineers , who will be able to function as team players and provide
opportunities for practical experiences
Ø To promote and support
research that can address and solve contemporary engineering problems in
Ø To develop graduates
independent learning skills to advance knowledge in their filed
Ø To meet the societal needs in
preparing specialists in technical education
